This is a segmented oak platter made for the wedding of the daughter from my sister-in-law.
Had to work hard to get it done, tomorrow is the wedding, so just in time.
This platter has a diameter of 305mm, almost the maximum diameter I can handle on my lathe. As usual finished with blanc transparent acrylic stain decoration on waterbase.
Comments or critique are welcome.
Cheers, Ad

Hi Ad you have been a busy lad must be fine weather over there for so much shed time.

Now I can see where to use some left over Oak not going to look as impressive I can assure you:2tsup:

Nice segmenting Ad, and a nice platter!!!:2tsup::2tsup::2tsup:

The overall effect for me is that of a spiderweb.

Cheers Tony.:2tsup:

Very nice mathematics, joinery and turning, Ad. If you don't mind me asking, how did you cut & join the rounded centre section?
